Stewart Golf has launched the X9 Follow golf trolley with a Bluetooth powered electronics system that allows the machine to follow the golfer at just the touch of a button. To use the ‘follow’ feature the golfer presses a button on the rechargeable remote control handset. Once the golfer starts to walk, the X9 Follow will stay a few paces behind and match the walking pace exactly. The X9 even holds its position going down hills, with the patented electronics system automatically varying and braking the twin motors to alter both speed and direction. The user friendly design means that between the golfer stopping at their ball to walking away again, no button presses are required.
As well as its ‘follow’ mode, the X9 Follow also comes with full remote control functionality. Golfers now have the option of keeping the handset on the handle for manual control, using the remote control or activating the follow function. Every X9 Follow will be made to order and is powered by a high-quality lithium battery, with a full two-year warranty covering both the trolley and the battery. The X9 Follow will retail for £1,499.
Stewart Golf CEO, Mark Stewart said, “We are constantly innovating and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. Our engineering team have worked extremely hard for more than three years to make the X9 Follow just as intuitive as the remote control models we’re famous for. Using the follow feature is undoubtedly the most relaxing way to play, but if you’re around the green or in deep rough then using the remote control to send your trolley to where you want it to be can be the most convenient option.”
